Two Hands Revy - Ship Chase >>19040>Spoiler prediction
Well I was partly correct although the Naruto-esque moment isn't quite her meeting her mother's soul, though she did accept herself (still wish she'd been aged up into grown Ruby, would have made for a good visual metaphor). Jaune got blasted by Weiss, but no sacrifice moment really happened. >Hopefully Ruby's catharsis is going to be a la Gurren Lagan "Be the best version of yourself that you can be".
Unfortunately did not happen.
>>18835 >Making another crossover between DC and RWBY only worse
The current run RWBY x DC comics began in Febuary and are still going as of July 2023 and it just keeps getting worse. It's plot is inane, the art style is just garbage and don't even get me started on the dialogue. Also ironically in Issue 4 they accidentally confirmed the joke about RWBY being the horsemen of the apocalypse.
In terms of character designs the DC folk look okay but RWBY just looks terrible; Ruby looks okayish even with the dorky goggles, and Weiss is mostly unchanged (other than that strange scar stylization) but why did they think Yang and Blakes costumes were any good at all here? Yang looks like a poorly done Silver Age (of comics) Scarlet Witch and Blake like a particularly lazy Catwoman cosplayer, which clashes terribly with the Modern Age designs of the DC-verse characters. https://rwby.fandom.com/wiki/DC_RWBY
Nora is definitely underrated - cheery, passionate, girly and pretty but strong too. Ren is a lucky guy. >>20297
THE Thunder Thighs! >TFW she will never squeeze your head between her thighs as her active semblance zaps you>>18958 >turned all emo.
I really don't know why they did that, especially since Ren didn't even do anything that bad to Nora even if he was an arse, and they literally kissed and made up. Feels contrived. The JL crossover movies Ren/Cyborg jealousy that Nora eggs on also feels OOC, even if it leads to some funny memes.
I'm sure this is exactly what Monty envisioned way back when.
Also does anyone else remember when he died insane gamergates online accusing his wife of murdering him
>>20521>I'm sure this is exactly what Monty envisioned way back when

Yes, honestly it was a joke in the /rwbyg/ community, amounting to "pussy killed him" but then the schizos took it seriously and created this huge incel-ish conspiracy, it was inane.

Part 2 got announced a few days ago with a teaser image (pic rel). It's gonna be released on Ruby's birthday (October 31st). I'm just hoping they don't exclude/side-show Jaune and the rest of JNR in this, because that would suck after the KnightLight build-up in the first one. JNR is listed to be in the film, so there's that. The RWBY-verse antagonist is probably Watts, though possibly Merlot may make an appearance instead, which would be fun.
The original comic-run is no help in guessing since Starro was the main antagonist there, it was actually a physical Justice League transplanted/merged into the RWBY-verse instead of a VR in Volume 7-8 and it actually takes place somewhere between Volume 2 and 3 sort of like Ice Queendom, evident by Pyrrha being alive, although JNPR are mostly cameo appearances instead. That being said it's still fun. I'm guessing/hoping that Part 2 is going to have the RWBY-verse physically transfer over to the DC-verse.https://readallcomics.com/category/rwby-justice-league/
Speaking of KnightLight - here's a fic that got removed from FFN because of wannabe jannies on the site review-bombing over the stories not fitting the M-rating limit.
There's some others also written on fanfiction.net in the crossover section and /RWBYg/ has a dedicated TrafficLight writer that made a few KnightLight greens as well, I gotta go dig up some of the Zips.
One thing I'm honestly surprised and disappointed in the lack of is Grimmified characters, it is so unbelievably hard to find a fic with a Grimm Ruby or Grimm Summer or grimm anyone (which is strange considering that it's been a fan theory/idea for a long time). Especially after the reveal of the Grimm Hound being based on a Silver-eyed Faunus and Cinder's Grimm arm which I would have thought as perfect food for fanfic material. The only contender for these would be some Grimm-turned-human fics, but even those are scarce and rarely well written. In terms of fan-art there's only slightly more than fics and not all of it is good either.
The number of fics I've found is barely 2 dozen or so and they're wildly disappointing, considering the sheer number of RWBY fanfics there are. I can only recommend 3 of them, all Jaune focused which are pretty good. If anyone knows of any others please link them.
3 fics I recc:
The initial story prompt is basically Rosario Vampire, but it becomes something wildly different and pretty interesting
This one really goes all out in branching off the canon timeline and doesn't hold back at all in terms of both imaginative Grimm and the horrific nature of battle. It also doesn't play around with Grimmification like most fics, so it's not just a 'humanoid grimm' but a monsterous grimm, built on the twisted remains of a human killed by Salem (I won't spoil who).
kinda has some aspects from the plot of Parasyte but with a well-meshed twist by making it Grimm related and impact the plot of the story, giving Jaune unexpected and unique abilities and problems.

Jap dub isn't very fun tbh, although that might be because I've grown tired of Japanese speaking in anime in general overall. I used to be sub > dub, but now its the reverse.
do all the seasons have a jap dub?
You can find it easily on 9anime (now aniwave) https://aniwave.to/watch/rwby.r93o/ep-1>>20752 >CRASH Episode 1: From The Top
Shoulda posted the link outright in case the embed dies, forgot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyMWEQB0AUg&ab_channel=B00mrang
Your link only has 13 episodes in Japanese.
Strange, they must have been removed. Link rel has them up to Volume 4 and Volumes 5-7 did get dubbed, but I can't find them at the moment. https://www.youtube.com/@RubyRoseSilverEyes/playlists
On a different note, Raven should have been more Asian looking (especially considering her touhou Reimu + samurai based attire) and subsequently Yang should have been half-asian looking. Or have it be a switcharoo - make Tai the asian one with Western LARP and Raven a samurai 2hu LARPer. I still like Yang's original design, but it's just a thought that occurred to me. It would fit the "yakuza delinquent" vibe she had originally.
Avatar the Last Airbender has dislike among the Japanese because the Fire Nation is very clearly a depiction of Meiji era Japan, with all the fascist industrial-capitalist aspects it had. The Japanese post-1990s, have become very allergic to negative depictions of Ancient Japan and Japan in general, thus films and series that revealed the ugly side of Japan's feudal and imperial past (Seven Samurai, Zatoichi, Inuyasha, Princess Mononoke) are no longer common, and in general such works have become niche, because it's an informal taboo. For similar, nationalist reasons the Nanking Massacre (which the wiping out of the Air Nomads is similar to) is ignored. Ironically RWBY is partially influenced by ATLA according to Miles Luna.
TL;DR: ATLA reminds the Japanese of their country's past misdeeds.

>>20950>Ironically RWBY is partially influenced by ATLA according to Miles Luna.
If your typically burger exaggeration of quotation marks for the sake of pretentiously overbearing sarcasm is implying the RWBY aped off of ATLA, then you've clearly seen neither.
Very little of RWBY's main features is like ATLA, you can vaguely say that the concept of 4 kingdoms of different regions that the main cast travel and visit for various plot arcs references ATLA, but even that is very vague, there are some elements glimmering through, but nothing more than that. >>20921>>20912

New "volume" when?
RTX 2023 did not confirm Volume 10, but Shawcross was quoted as saying “Eddy [Rivas] and I and the writer’s team have been working on stuff for Volume 10 despite not having a greenlight,”
also >Kerry: "We don't have a Volume 10 greenlight yet, but we are going to show something at the panel that is post-Volume 9."
And they showed a lot of unfinished stuff from the end of Vol 9 which would actually make for a good Volume 10 beginning, I've posted it in the thread. I think that RT is going to work on V10 a bit on the side but concentrate on the JL crossover which comes out on Halloween and is their next big project. I'm predicting an announcement for V10 around then and a release date probably in mid-late 2024, going by previous history. Likely it's a hangup in negotiations with the unnamed "partners" they mentioned (I suspect it's CR).
There are rumors it will be called Volume X.
I thought it was
oh boy, I can't wait to get corpo slop in my vaguely indie anime
>>21191>Who the hell cares about these spinoffs
Not enjoying other content with RWBY that extends the life-span of the series
Besides it's clearly a way to pull for time in regards to Volume 10. >>21188
If you mean to mock my post, it's falling flat since my expectations for JLxRWBY P2 are quite low actually, I'm just lamenting that in the face of how unexpectedly decent Part 1 was.
It would have been cool to see Jaune as the Rusted Knight again too.
Fucking hate Winter tbh. Biggest bootlicking bitch in the series, and only turned on Ironwood at the last moment with a shoddy excuse, even though she is as much, if not more culpable for the actions he and the Ace Ops did for most of the series. >Literally runs away from home, abandoning her sister and brother to the tyranny of their abusive father and alcoholic mother >Thinks the sun shines from Ironwood's Iron Wood through the entire series before her heel-face turn >Grew up in a rich prissy environment and sees anyone not like her as lesser than her>Absolute Jobber
Honestly the list goes on.
Seriously, fanfiction depictions of her make her a more likeable character. I know the early season depictions were just Monty following anime tropes for Weiss as the rich girl with a hard-ass older sister who's better than her, but the more we see of Winter, the less I like her. I wanted Cinder to kill her at the end of Vol 8, and giving her the Maiden powers, while expected was just such a wasting of Penny.
Yes, but she's pretty. I don't even remember what made her change her mind about Ironwood in the end.
Basically she got guilty about her sister and her possible death and suddenly decided she gave that much of a shit about her.
Last updates were in >>21062
and the screencap I thought was from V10 >>20623
is actually from the JL crossover Part II. However JL 2 does take place after Volume 9 so the mistake is understandeable. It makes the lack of Jaune in the actual crossover all the more annoying though, considering the aspect of him essentially being a middle-aged man in the body of a 19 year old and having suffered quite a bit more since his initial meeting with the Justice League and Jess.
